Re: Batteries type

Four AA-size alkaline batteries, lithium batteries, and Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries can be used. The D-460/490 Zoom can also use two Olympus CR-V3 (LB-01) long-life lithium batteries. Olympus recommends the use of Ni-MH batteries or CR-V3 long-life lithium batteries (where applicable).

Camera turns off itself


This is likely because:
  1. You are using the wrong types of batteries (Alkaline, Ni-Cd or Ni-MH batteries are recommended for digital cameras) NOTE: don't mix different types.
  2. The battery is out of charging cycles and won't retain charge. (Most rechargeable batteries can be charged only about 1000 times after which they won't hold charge)
  3. The batteries aren't 'powerful' enough. (low quality rechargeable batteries with low capacity shouldn't be used on digital cameras, Always buy batteries specialized for cameras (from camera stores or studios))
  4. The wrong battery type is selected in the camera's settings. (Most cameras let you select the type of battery you are using from it's settings. Browse through the settings and see if this is the problem)
Hope that fixed it. Good luck.

Everytime I put batteries in it just beeps like the batteries are low and won't turn on


I had that problem. The camera can distinguish between NiMH and Alcaline batteries. Your camera is probably set to the wrong type.
Put in fully charged NiMH batteries OR alcaline batteries, check which doesn't cause beeping. After switching on the camera search for the menu where you can change the battery type and change it to that type you want to use. Consult the manual if you cannot find the option, it's under the setup icon.

Batteries do not last long at all


You didn't specify a camera model or battery type, so the response has to be general. If you're using rechargeable batteries, make sure that they are the type specified in your camera's manual. If the camera requires Ni-MH batteries and you've been using Ni-Cd, the batteries will run down quickly. Also, if using "standard" (non-chargeable) alkaline batteries, make sure that they are fresh, premium batteries, not store brand batteries.

I hope this solves the problem -- if not, please post again with camera model and the type of battery that you've been using.

It says battery exausted even with new batteries


I beleive your batteries are of incorrect type or you need to set the type of the battery through menu. My favorite batteries are from Wal-mart: Energizer rechargeable Ni-Mh 2450mAh, (15 min recharging time) they fit any type of camera without setting the battery type through menu. Some incorrect type of batteries often damage the CCD. Ni-Mh Energizer never damages the CCD (black screen), while regular (non-rechargeable) Energizers may damage CCD in Sony S700 or similar cameras.

Wrong batteries settings prevents access to menu


Charge fully the batteries you have, to prevents the camera distinguish the type of batteries (maybe the camera senses the charge), turn on the camera and you will have access to the menu to set up the batteries type correctly, that´s all.

Types of batteries.


You can use AA disposable batteries (alkaline or lithium) or rechargeable (NiMH or Nicad) batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer, but are generally quite a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries. You should never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. If you use Nicad batteries, it is recommended that you use a Nicad conditioning charger to extend the life of the batteries. Note: If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need a battery charger. The camera's AC power supply does not recharge batteries.

Type of batteries


Olympus recommends the use of Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) rechargeable batteries or Olympus CR-V3 (LB-01) long-life disposable lithium batteries. The batteries are only used to power the camera. The print engine in the C-211 Zoom is powered by a battery pack self-contained inside each Polaroid® Type 500™ film pack.
